1 Peter 2:1-6 RSV

1 So put away all malice and all guile and insincerity and envy and all slander.
2 Like newborn babes, long for the pure spiritual milk, that by it you may grow up to salvation;
3 for you have tasted the kindness of the Lord.
4 Come to him, to that living stone, rejected by men but in God's sight chosen and precious;
5 and like living stones be yourselves built into a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
6 For it stands in scripture: "Behold, I am laying in Zion a stone, a cornerstone chosen and precious, and he who believes in him will not be put to shame."
